Abstract: Abstract: Taking the centered-fan fields for example, the application of an orthogonal net of circles for construction of the complex slip-line fields are discussed. The results of this method are compared with the results of the numerical method and the matrix-operator method. The calculation shows that result of above three methods proffers a good approximation.
